Things have been a bit hectic, tiring, and cranky in our household this week as Claire has entered another difficult phase. We’re not sure if it is another growth spurt or teething, but our now-3-month-old (as of yesterday!) has not been this fussy since she was 6 weeks old.
We will be ringing in the new year in typical new parents’ style: a quiet night at home — that is, if we’re not already passed out by the time the clock hits midnight. If we are still up, we may sneak downstairs for a few minutes to watch the ball drop (we have a decent view of Times Square from just outside our building) and steal a New Year’s kiss.
My resolution for 2011 is simple: to be more grateful and thankful. I am such a pessimist (and a drama queen) that I often overlook all the blessings in my life.
I hope that everyone has a great New Year’s Eve, and wish you all the best in 2011!
(And if you’re Korean, may your tummies be filled with tons of ddukgook tomorrow!)
